Though almost five years old, The Standard Grill – and its bar – are still staples for both locals and tourists brave enough to mingle with the downtown crowd (or, yes, happen to be staying in the hotel). While there’s nothing particularly noteworthy about the menu, most dishes are consistent and offered alongside delicious, inventive cocktails and a quality wine list.
The restaurant is particularly perfect for outdoor seating, celebrity sightings, brunch/boozy brunch, big groups, business meetings, lunch, (beautiful) people watching, breakfast and entertaining out of town friends. The bar section of The Standard Grill works well for casual dates, girls’ nights out, business drinks and meeting rich guys/hot girls. More info below:
Good For Outdoor Seating: The restaurant itself has a fair amount of tables at which to eat/drink outside and, recently, they’ve expanded the outdoor area off of the lobby – meaning there’s a pretty fair shot at dining al fresco.
Good For Girls’ Nights Out: It’s walking distance from most clubs worth going to (two of which are actually located in the hotel), which makes it a great spot to grab small plates and/or the first drinks of the evening before venturing into a big night with girlfriends.
Good For Celebrity Sightings: Though the constant stream of notables has trickled off a bit, there’s still a good chance you’ll see someone worth writing home (or tweeting) about.
